    I was looking at buying a Tivo, but I have a question first. How does a Tivo work with a GI cable box? Do you use the Tivo guide or the cable guide to change channels? Does the Tivo control the cable box or vice versa? Just looking for how this works in general. Thanks! [​IMG]

    You'll use the TiVo guide (but you can look at both) since you'll do all your scheduling with it. TiVo's control cable boxes with an IR blaster which is included.
